Give Coax the Axe The number one application for the Furnace is in replacing costly RF distribution of live TV to residence halls across campus. The efficiencies of using a single CAT5 IP infrastructure are clear. Today, the students certainly understand the convenience of IPTV and are embracing the trend towards wireless access to live content on their PCs. Administrators are also embracing the benefits of centrally controlled TV distribution with the ability to provision access and deliver advanced services such as video on demand.
Secure Distribution When contracting cable and satellite companies to provide content for delivery across an IP network, especially for premium HD channels, the primary concern is the requirement to adhere to content rights management. Haivision’s Furnace provides a 100% secure end-to-end system using AES encryption – the fundamental of almost all secure content delivery platforms. If the content is not encrypted, anyone on the network can digitally record content with ease.
Accountability The Furnace system combines a strong position with respect to security with powerful Conditional Access technology and the unique client/server architecture of InStream to give administrators 100% access control and accountability. With Furnace, administrators can control and report on exactly what live and on-demand asset are accessed at what time and by which users.
